The ditch banks and North Valley Bosque sets the stage for this ghostly affair and one you won't want to miss! You won't want to run or walk these ditches alone...so bring a friend!

La Llorona ("The Weeping Woman") is a legendary ghost prominent in the folklore of Hispanic America and New Mexico folklore. According to the tradition, La Llorona is the ghost of a woman who lost her children and cries while looking for them by the river and ditchbanks.
